After enabling cloudflare cannot access Wordpress Admin Dashboard

After enabling cloudflare for my website i.e., I m not able to access Wordpress Admin Dashboard. An error message showing “sorry you are not allowed to access this page”. After pause cloudflare and purge entire cache, it back to normal.

It sounds like a firewall rule is blocking it.

Can you post a screenshot of that error message?

I can open that link without issue, perhaps clear your browser cache?

Do you know if you have some sort of plugin that requires IP whitelisting? It might also be something your web host themselves use to only allow whitelisted IPs to access the admin panel.

Make sure you’re restoring visitor IPs on the server, otherwise visitor IPs will show up as CF visitors.
